This is what our house sounded like when I was a kid.
Written by Gordon Lightfoot
I can remember listening to this in Saskatoon, behind Hugh Cairns, V.C. where I went for grades 7 & 8, might have been after I graduated but still lived in that neighbourhood.
Some '60s jazz:
Lee Morgan - Yes I Can, No You Can't
nice little instrumental from my fav C&W outfit of the '60s:
Another little known Canadian delight
Bravebelt - Dunrobin's Gone
Paul Revere and the Raiders - Let Me
Good ol' Bachman-Turner-Bachman-Allan !
Always loved this one, from 1969 - Ma Belle Amie by the Tee-Set
I recently bought Born Free on Blu ray and was reminded how much I love Matt Munro's gorgeous version. Shockingly, it never made the Hot 100 despite the song itself winning an Oscar.
The Sparkles ,
'No Friend of Mine' (1967)
The guitar break that hits at 1:00 is the first electric lead I learned to copy note-for-note at a very young age. Thankfully my parents were pleased with the result, if not so much with the volume on my amp !
Ray with a couple of the guys in their band uniforms:
Top tier garage tune!
The 1960s UK no. 1 thread has just had this pop in as a new entry, and IMHO it's the best song of '61 -
John Leyton, Johnny Remember Me:
'As Time's Gone' (1967)
Debbie Rollins, Someone:
The other great song by the completely unknown Debbie Rollins -
Don't Let It Get You Girl:
Idy Lynn, Up In My Mind:
Here's a song that bubbled under the charts from the Buckinghams. The mono mix is powerfully strong, but this song never became a hit.
